UConn freshman QB Cochran sidelined

UConn announced that freshman quarterback and two-time Gatorade State Player of the Year Casey Cochran suffered an injury to his left (non throwing) wrist in a biking accident and will undergo surgery later this week.

Cochran began his career at New London before transferring to Masuk and leading the Panthers to the 2010 Class L title. Cochran is among the players in contention for UConn's starting quarterback spot.

 He graduated early and enrolled at UConn for the spring semester enabling him to take part in spring practice and play in the spring game. Cochran struggled in the game, completing just 4 of 15 passes for 46 yards. Cochran threw an interception and was sacked three times. Going by what I saw in the spring game, I'd have to say that Chandler Whitmer (who was 18 of 27 passing for 187 yards with two touchdowns and an interception) would be the frontrunner once fall camp opens although UConn coach Paul Pasqualoni refused to name a starter following the end of spring practice.
